Looks sick. Green and orange go together like bullets and guns

This is far and away the best test/video I've ever seen with back to back slow motion of the new stuff vs competition. There is no way I'd buy this stuff (at least this version) with what I've seen in regards to chain retention, and that's some cool info to know.

No wonder why all the cool sports think MTB is lame...

Not really a bike part, but nothing replaces replaces actually knowing how to ride -- as in working with a GOOD riding coach. Just ride more, right? You'll figure it out? Check out pro motocross and notice how ALL the top 250 riders have riding coaches. ... more »

It makes sense on many levels. Apparently, it's just a bit over your head.

eBikes are the new roller blades. Which makes this an even bigger bummer

These stupid Mo-peds (that's what they are) are hurting trail access for ALL mtb'er's.

Unless you're disabled or over 75 years old, get your fat ass in shape, learn to ride, and pedal, suffer, push to the top. If you're one of those, "they're so fun! you don't get it!" Then man up and ride a dirtbike.

Does it have a motor? Is it a 'cycle"? Then?...

Unless you're disabled or over 70 yrs old, stop being a lazy fat-ass and pedal a bike without a motor on non-motorized trails. If you want a motor, get a dirtbike. I do both. Both are mega-fun. But let's not jeopardize trail access of MTB by riding MOTORCYCLES on trails with hikers, runners, old people, dogs, blah, blah.

Would you please tell me what differentiates a mountain bike from a dirt bike, i.e. at what point does a bicycle become a motorcycle? I’m not necessarily opposed to ebikes but the fact that they have a motor, tiny or large, makes them a motorcycle of some sort and it’s an incorrect categorization to include them...more

A bike that turns everyone into Nino Schurter on climbs, allows beginners access to the highest (often rowdiest) trails and doubles the distance/trail degradation they can do in the same time is a completely different sport.

Yes I’ve ridden a couple. My comments stand.

Buy a dirtbike. Ride it on the track or trail. They're super fun to climb! Ride your MTB on MTB non-motorized trails.

The problem is they're GONNA HURT TRAIL ACCESS FOR MOUNTAINBIKING!

You're probably right in that e-bikes will get cheaper and better and than way more people will ride e-MTB. And we will lose trail access and be denied it on future trails because now we're all riding electric pedal assisted motorcycles (that's what they are!!!) on what are intended to be non-motorized trails with hikers and dogs and old people.

MTB is already the Bad Guy of user groups and once there is 5x the traffic (more users cause it's much easier and ability to cover 4x as much ground per ride) we'll just lose access. The parks aren't going to decern between motorized and non-motorized; they'll just give MTB's the boot all together.

I think the real solution is some kind of EMP device that can be deployed when getting passed by ebike on a climb.

Not sure how it could be done without damaging the Ebike in some way though, something that I do not endorse.

Great article and totally agree. People who like riding these boat anchors were the guys who sucked on normal bikes.

The problem is they will hurt trail access. I've seen plenty of e-bikers out on the trails that WILL hurt themselves and/or others because the barrier of MTB being hard (to get to the top at least and cover ground) is almost non-existent with an e-bike. They have no clue what they're doing out there. More hikers getting run over, more inexperienced 'e-riders' getting hurt on the way down, more EMS runs to extract injured people off the trail.

MTB being difficult means that only the people that really want to do it and are willing to pay the dues will get out there. This filters out the the people that probably shouldn't be out there, don't know what they're doing, and are a big threat to MTB access, especially on future trails.

I get the injury thing like with Paul or others that are disabled. This is a positive with e-bikes. But let's face it: that's not why most people buy e-bikes.
